The Senate’s bipartisan gun reform legislation is facing pushback from top Republicans in the House despite the measure having the blessing of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), with House GOP leadership planning to whip against the bill.

While McConnell was one of 14 GOP lawmakers who voted to advance the measure in the upper chamber, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (LA) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) told members they would not back the bill and encouraged them to follow suit during a GOP conference meeting Wednesday morning.

The article goes on to state the following:

Critics of the bill have voiced reservations about its language to incentivize states to adopt red flag laws, which would ease the process to allow law enforcement to confiscate firearms and block the purchase of a gun from someone deemed to be a danger to themselves or others, arguing that it fails to ensure due process and could infringe on law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights.


“I will oppose the Senate bill because provisions in it would place additional unnecessary impediments and burdens on [a] law-abiding citizen’s right to own a firearm,” McCarthy also reportedly told the Federalist.  “We must not have knee-jerk reactions in how the federal government approaches red flag laws, where Congress strong-arms states into passing laws that may violate the Second Amendment and deprive citizens their right to due process.”

“House Republicans support increased resources for school safety and mental health,” McCarthy also said. “That’s why we recently supported Rep. Richard Hudson’s STOP II Act on the House Floor, that could help address these deadly shootings. This bill, however, goes beyond those contours.”

  1. McConnell has to go! He’s been working on 5ge other side for a long time. So does Romney, Ernst, Graham & the rest of the big Runs! Time for change. We do not want them any longer!we are tired of all the B.S. Politicians put us through. Everybody knows the gun doesn’t pull a trigger. It’s the person with a deranged mind. Don’t punish those who take firearm safety classes & those who are responsible people.

  2. Rino’s, Vote them out. Cowards against the greatest country in the world. Socialism will not work. Big paycheck from the big crooked lobbyists.My opinion only…God Bless America.”TERM LIMITS “

  3. What even makes them think this bill will do a thing. I’m pretty sure the criminals in Democrat controlled cities didn’t get their guns legally. They’re sold on the black market. Maybe they need to switch on the TV on the weekends and watch it in real time. Pleanty of shows out there that shows this stuff.

  4. They had no time to even read it. Senator mike lee stated they had minutes before vote was started. It’s the new “thing” in Congress. No debate. No amendments. No time to read thousands of pages, voting until 3 in the AM, allowing proxy voting so you can’t be swayed or discuss anything. It’s a disgrace!
